Windows 7: Windows Media Player Volume Not Working for DVDs

Windows Media Player Volume Not Working for DVDs

Ok for some reason when I am trying to play a DVD on Windows Media Player, the volume will not change. It is really loud, and if I change the volume in Windows Media Player it does not change. I've tried changing the volume in Windows Media Player itself and on my system. Whenever I open volume mixer it doesn't show that Windows Media Player has any sound coming from it. But if I try to play an mp3 file, the volume actually works and changes, I can change the volume through Windows Media Player or my system sound. How do I fix this?

Hello Welcome to SF,

I guess it might has to do something with codec. Try download the Shark Windows 7 Codec and see whether your having the same problem. (Make sure you reboot the System)

Hope this helps,
